Quizzers Starter Pack #2

Quizzers Start Pack #2
The A-Z of Everything (Trevor Montague)

If you have ever looked into the world of general reference works then the name Trevor Montague is one that you should hopefully have came across. Trevor has, for a number of years, been producing several versions of this A-Z of Everything, that is a vast tome of General Knowledge. There have been several spin offs (more on that later) but the main entry in the series covers the wide berth of General Knowledge.
The book itself is a weighty tome, well over 1,000 pages, and jam packed with information. This book covers way more than the Pears Quiz Companion, and goes into a vast range of detail. Its a much bigger task to tackle learning this than the Pears Title, which is why I would suggest this is more useful as a dip in and out work after the Pears book as been studied.
Many quizzers would probably suggest this serves well as the measuring stick for reference guides, and indeed learning this book would certainly improving your quizzing. Due to its depth I think a larger % of the content of Pears has come up than this book, but if you love learning, facts and huge reference works.....then this is your answer!
